He said a special investigation team (SIT) headed by SDPO Uri was constituted to investigate the murder.

“The SIT interrogated the suspects and during sustained questioning of the step-mother of the deceased, a bone-chilling and horrible account of murder and rape of the nine-year-old child came to light,” Mir said.

“During questioning, she revealed that her husband would mostly spend time with her second wife and the girl was dearest to him,” he said.

She hatched a conspiracy to eliminate her step-daughter. On a fateful day, she was armed with a sharp-edged knife and took the girl to the nearby forest area. Her 14-year-old son joined her along with his friends and committed the crime.

The SSP said the girl was gang-raped by the accused in presence of her step-mother. They all took turns to rape her and thereafter her step-mother strangulated her, Mir said.

Detailing the extent of brutality, the SSP said, “While the step-mother strangulated her, the step-brother hit her head with an ax. Another accused gouged out her eyes with a sharp knife and then sprinkled acid on her body parts. Physical condition and preliminary forensic analysis of the body substantiated all these facts”.
